baby afghan for a friend

One of my friends (we went to school together from middle school through high school) is having a baby soon! Momma and I got invited to her baby shower that was last Saturday.

I wanted to make her something very special. Something handmade from the heart. So, over the Christmas holiday I crocheted my fingers off to make this very soft green baby afghan! It turned out just beautiful in my opinion.
And, I was lucky enough to have consultation from my sister-in-law, Amy, on the edging. We discussed and tried a few different styles only to decide on this lovely border!

My friend was so pleased when she opened her present. She really appreciated the handmade special gift. I'm so glad I was able to make her something from the heart!

That will be one lucky little baby all wrapped up in a soft hand crochet blanket! I absolutely love the color and edging!

Catching up on reading -- the blanket turned out great! True to form I got to throw out a lot suggestions while you did the hard work. It looks fab!
